5 Months Old!

Axel is five months old!
Axel can roll over both directions now.  He hasn't figured out how to use it to his advantage to get places yet like Pearl did at this age, but he often rolls over on accident.  He loves playing with toys now and swings his arms around excitedly while holding them.  He can throw a toy across the room, but has no idea he's doing it.
He hates bottles although I think I discovered a brand he will tolerate.  We introduced food this month and although he wasn't sure at first, he is starting to get better at eating and seems to enjoy it more.  So far he has tried sweet potatoes, avocados, butternut squash, peas, and bananas.  Obviously, bananas were his favorite.
He is still generally pretty happy, but has started to get pretty attached to me.  If I'm in the room, he prefers that I hold him and if I can't, he would like to have me in his sight at all times.  He will generally sit in his little chair in the evening and watch me cook/eat dinner.  He will happily sit there for around 90 minutes before deciding it's time to get out.
Axel still sleeps best while swaddled.  I know that needs to come to an end soon since he is good at rolling now.  I don't want him to end up on his belly without available hands to help himself.  He also still wakes multiple times to eat at night.  I would like that to come to an end soon too, ha!
See how much he has grown!
